Official Skype App For E71 & E72 Now Available

Hey gals & gals! The official Skype application is finally out for the Nokia E71. Good thing is it works for the E63 and E72 as well. Not sure about the E71x, however. Something tells me that AT&T probably disabled this from working. All of the main features needed are included in the Skype application for Symbian. Contacts list (with thumbnails), chat, and talk are supposed to work without any problems. How awesome would it be if video chat was included?

Ruben from sent me a tweet today letting me know of his full review of Skype of the E71. He provides an overview of all the features along with screenshots. Be sure to check it out before trying it yourself.

Go to from your mobile browser to try Skype on your Nokia E71 or E72 smartphone. Be sure to let us know your thoughts and what can be improved!

E71 Forums Are Down This Week, Hopefully Back This Weekend

Hi all! Sorry for the lack of forums and articles here at the coolest place for E71 owners to hang out. I've had a lot going on the past few months including a new job and my wedding to plan. Things are slowing down a bit finally so I'll be able to put more attention back into this site. I had to change servers recently which is why the forums are down. All the content and users in the database will still be intact, although some of you might have to re-upload your avatar. Look for the forums to be back up this weekend - I'll give you guys a heads up right here and at our @e71fanatics twitter account.

Stay tuned for lots of coverage on the Nokia E72. My fiance and I have been using the E72 for the past month or so. She absolutely loves it, even more than I do. I'll have lots of photos to show you and will be answering any questions that you guys and gals might have.

Have a good week everyone!

Catch Up With Updates To The Google Maps Application: Sync Favorites, Maps & Add Layers

It’s been awhile since I mentioned the Google Maps application that I use so often on my E71. Since that time it’s received some huge updates that I’ve been meaning to share with you E71 Fanatics! Almost on a daily basis I open it up to search for a gas station, local pub, bank, or a place to buy flowers. I get details I need such as the phone number, directions, reviews, etc. It’s really astonishing. I even save my favorite places for later viewing and fast access for directions.

I don’t only use Google Maps on my smartphone. I also use the powerful webpage on my computer to find what I'm looking for. What if you can sync those places, directions, maps, etc. between computer and E71? Well if you haven’t updated to the latest version in awhile, then you’re really missing out.

From the Google Mobile Blog:
Google Maps for mobile has long allowed you to add stars on a map to mark your
favorite places. You may have noticed a few months ago that Google Maps for
desktop browsers introduced the ability to star places as well. Unfortunately,
there was no way to keep these starred places in sync with Google Maps on your
phone. With today’s release of Google Maps for mobile 3.3 on Windows Mobile and
Symbian phones, you’ll now be able to keep the starred places on your phone and
on your computer completely synchronized. It’s like magic, but magic that you
can use.

Awesome right? That’s not it. Check out the new “layers” feature that I mentioned in the title.

Quote from blog post:
Just as the world itself can be viewed through many lenses, the latest version
of Google Maps for mobile allows you to view many layers of information on your
map at the same time. Layers make it easier and more useful to find and interact
with geographic content, like public transit, traffic (with incidents!), local
search results, Latitude friend locations, Wikipedia and more. You can also see
your own My Maps content as a layer on Google Maps for mobile. And finally,
multiple layers can be combined at the same time to give you a content-rich view
of what’s around you.

If you haven’t already tried out Google Maps you need to! I hardly ever fire up Ovi Maps anymore.
